Mary Elizabeth Winstead Is Up For Scott Pilgrim Sequel - And Even Has An Idea For A Plot

Mary Elizabeth Winstead has not only revealed that she'd be well up for a sequel to Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, but also that she has some of her own ideas about what that second instalment should entail.

Speaking at the press junket for her new film, Birds of Brey, Winstead said she'd be 'curious' to see what had happened to the film's characters a decade on - something that would also mirror the passing of time in real life, as the movie was released back in 2010.

Chatting to, she said: "You know what, I think that would be so cool. I would be so curious to know what happened to these characters when they're in their mid-30s as opposed to the sort of 20s slacker thing.

"So I think it would be really interesting. We always talked about a sequel when we were doing it, but we always imagined it would be like, still like a year later. Where are they? But I think it's way more fascinating to know where they'd be 10 years later. I'm down for it."

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World became a huge cult hit when it was released 10 years ago, with director Edgar Wright giving his cinematic spin on Bryan Lee O'Malley's graphic novel series Scott Pilgrim.

It starred Michael Cera as our titular hero alongside Winstead - who played his love interest Ramona Flowers - and the likes of Kieran Culkin, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Alison Pill, Brandon Routh and Jason Schwartzman.

While many of us have been longing for a sequel ever since, writer-director Edgar Wright has been busying himself with other projects, including Ant-Man and Baby Driver.

With no official word of anything on the way, for now Winstead's idea remains merely hypothetical - but at least in the meantime fans can tide themselves over with the actor's current film, Birds of Prey, which is a Suicide Squad spin-off released next month.

It follows Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) as she teams up with other anti-heroes from the DC Comics universe, including Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya, having been dubbed an 'R-rated girl gang film' after Robbie told Collider: "I pitched the idea of an R-rated girl gang film including Harley, because I was like, 'Harley needs friends.'

"Harley loves interacting with people, so don't ever make her do a standalone film.

"She's got to be with other people, it should be a girl gang. I wasn't seeing enough girl gangs on screen, especially in the action space. So that was always a big part of it."

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) lands in cinemas on 7 February 2020.
